Social distancing guidelines... always try to stay at least 6 feet from the gators.

... a couple of snaps of the salties of Singapore.
Salties are really impressive. Are these taken in the wild or in some zoo?

I only met them in person in the zoo of Stuttgart (Wilhelma) where a really big white one lived years ago.
It died because of eating coins and plastic that fell or was thrown in the enclosure :cry:

These are all in the wild, taken at Sungei Buloh Wetlands in NW Singapore.
There is a colony ranging from newly hatched to about 18ft.
The headshot is from the 100-400 @300mm and is not cropped.
It has no tail but would be about 16ft if it had one.

Phew! Pretty close...

The old whity that died in 2000 was about the same size almost 5 m, so 16, 17 ft - with tail.
They now have a 40 year old male from Australia in Stuttgart, 4,30 m, so more than 14 ft.

While in Costa Rica ... I nearly got my foot bit off. Just kidding but I wonder about that young fellow feeding chicken to the croc for our viewing pleasure.
